Mitchell Schwartz, RT
It’s been well documented about how Cleveland’s old regimes failed to take care of their own players–and Mitchell Schwartz is a prime example.

If the team could just keep the homegrown Schwartz, they’d be solidifying right tackle, and locking down a player, that by all accounts, shut down Vonn Miller–the most talked about pass rusher in the league thanks to his Super Bowl MVP performance–when Cleveland and Denver squared off during the 2015 regular season.
Additionally, Schwartz led all the Browns by playing 1,164 total snaps. He’s durable and he doesn’t get penalized, as he was whistled for just six penalties in 2015.
Schwartz is just 26, and his career shouldn’t be derailed anytime soon. The Browns took Schwartz with during the second round (37th overall) of the 2012 draft.
The Browns missed their chance to get a home team discount on Schwartz, because NFL reporter Ian Rappaport has written the Cal product wants to become the highest paid right tackle.
